Donate your leftover currency to HEART UK

HEART UK’s mission is to put a STOP to premature and preventable heart attacks and strokes caused by high cholesterol

Did you know that almost one in two adults have high cholesterol and are at risk from heart
attacks and strokes?   

You may be surprised to hear that high cholesterol is one of the leading causes of premature death in the UK.  Yet, many of these deaths are preventable.   
Most people don’t even know they have high cholesterol until they have a test.  That’s why it’s often referred to as ‘the silent killer’. 

It is easy to donate your leftover currency to HEART UK. To get started, download and fill out the HEART UK exchange form.

Your gift really will save lives, and here’s how:

  • HEART UK depends on donations and gifts in wills to educate doctors and nurses to identify people with high cholesterol and offer the best possible treatment.    
  • It is people like you, who fund the Cholesterol Helpline which gives a lifeline to people needing in-depth medical advice. 
  • Your gift will ensure cholesterol remains a top priority with decision makers and the NHS.

But it’s not just adult lives you’ll be saving… it’s children’s lives too

HEART UK is the only charity dedicated to a life-threatening, family condition called familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH).  It’s a genetic condition which can cause extremely high cholesterol levels, even in children. 

Around one in 250 people inherit FH.  Presently, most of these people will not know they have the condition until it is too late. 

Your gift will bolster the charity’s fight to ensure ‘hereditary cholesterol condition screening’ is available for EVERY child so that life-saving treatment can be given. 

You’ll be keeping families together for longer.
